Talento de barrio

 (2008)

Talento de barrio Blu-ray features mediocre video and poor audio in this poor Blu-ray release

Edgar Dinero is an angry young man from the slums of Puerto Rico who gets tangled between the thug life of his neighborhood and the beat of his barrio. On that path Edgar encounters disruption among his crewmen while falling in love with an uptown girl, from whom he must conceal his ties with the violent barrio underworld. Edgar may run, but he can't hide from the corrupt cops and the full-blown turf war amongst his men. Soon enough Edgar is faced with two choices: die as the Boss of the underworld or live as the King of Reggaeton.

Talento de barrio Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 23Mbps), Talento de Barrio suffers from limitations in the source material and some disappointing stylistic choices on the part of the cinematography. When I refer to the style of the film, I'm mainly decrying the intentional yellowing of the entire image, to give the film a dingy attribute. I can understand the desire to paint the slums in a negative light, but for anyone who's visited Puerto Rico this simply doesn't seem like an accurate representation of the environment. I'm convinced the cinematography could have shown the poverty-stricken atmosphere while still retaining a sense of normalcy in the visuals. The other source-related deficiency comes in the form of fine object detail, which only shows fleeting moments of excellence between lengthy stretches of muddled quality. The camerawork definitely falls within the amateur category, but properly focused shots should still manage to consistently reveal fine textures on the surface of facial skin, which is simply not the case here. Lastly, a primary weakness I'd attribute to the transfer is a shallow sense of depth in the darker sequences, where contrast struggles to reveal gradual shade transitions. Part of the problem is related to a lack of quality in the blackest of blacks, but even if the black levels were a little deeper, I'd imagine the problem would remain.


Talento de barrio Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

As with any non-English language release, I prefer to listen to the audio track that contains the original dialog. In the case of Talento de Barrio, this meant my only option is a lossy 2.0 mix with marginal proficiency. Listening to nuances of the track, there's a certain muffled quality to the dialog or environmental effects, which became all the more apparent during moments when the soundtrack comes thundering to the forefront. As expected from a 2-channel mix, every element is firmly planted in the front soundstage with little side-to-side separation and uninspired range (for a perfect example, listen to the pathetic pop of gun discharge during the territorial brawl of the opening scene). I'd imagine this is the best we're going to get given the budgetary constraints the sound crew had to work within, but it's too bad the other elements in the mix don't match the robust nature of Daddy Yankee's studio recordings.
